S3B4_usa_512With the year’s end holidays less than 30 days away, and the release of First and Last Sorcerer just beyond that, it is time to pick up one extra present.

Here we are again, and it is about time! As with previous raffles in this series, you pick your prize when you enter!

Barb and J.C. have “author’s copies” left for some hardbound volumes in Noble Dead Saga; first editions, just like in all raffles. That includes the previous book in the Noble Dead Saga, A Wind in the Night, but unfortunately the coming next novel. The prize will be signed by us. Here are the volumes still available:

S2B2: Through Stone and Sea
S2B3: Of Truth and Beasts
S3B1: Between Their Worlds
S3B2: The Dog in the Dark
S3B3: A Wind in the Night

The rules, requirements, and process information are listed below. You must also submit the title of the book you want if you win. This will save a little time in processing prizes. Please follow instructions without exception so your entry is confirmed on the first submission.

This raffle is open to only readers in the USA.

Deadline for receipt of all entries is Friday, December 12th, 2014, Midnight PST (by the received timestamp on your emailed entry). By the following Monday, one random winner will be notified via email. Yes, there will be more RCR raffles to come in the new year.
